Gold Cup Additional Each Way Places
The Cheltenham Gold Cup is the highlight of the National Hunt season and is eagerly anticipated as the highlight of the Cheltenham Festival. The 2019 Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup on Friday 16th October 2019 is expected to see an unusually large field and that will ensure that a number of online bookmakers will offer 4 places each way and potentially even 5 places each way at the Cheltenham showpiece race. Despite relatively small fields, a number of online bookmakers are always looking to give their customers value, so more additional each way spots are certainly not out of the question in 2019. So 4 places each way or potentially even 5 places at the 2019 Cheltenham Gold Cup is a distinct possibility as bookmakers look to offer maximum profit opportunity for their customers. It's certainly a promotion which will drive 2019 Cheltenham Festival new customer
numbers for savvy bookmakers.
2019 Gold Cup 4 Places Each Way
The Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup Steeple Chase is the Blue Riband race of the National Hunt season. Field sizes have varied from 16 in 2009 and 2015, to just 9 in 2016. 2017 saw 13 runners go to post for the stiff 3 and 1/2 mile race and that creates a huge opportunity for each way punters. The Jockey Club in 2013 stated that in handicap races with more than 16 runners each way terms should be 1/4 odds on places 1-2-3-4. The Gold Cup is no Handicap, BUT for championship races the online bookmakers also tend to use the Jockey Club rule as a guideline. So although nothing is confirmed - as yet - for the 2019 running expect selective bookmakers to offer 4 places each way and potentially 5 places each way on the Cheltenham Gold Cup. 2017 saw Paddy Power offer-up 4 places each-way at 1/5 odds for Gold Cup punters.
With anything as low as 9 runners across recent
renewals, online bookmakers payout the standard 3 places each way at 1/4 odds and more commonly 1/5 odds . However the Gold Cup is so popular with punters desperate for a serious bet, that a growing number of bookmakers over recent seasons have promoted an additional place or potentially two, with 4 or even 5 places at the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Naturally 4 places covers circa 25% of the field - a situation which can only drive the chances of profit.
At the time of writing, no
bookmakers have extended beyond the standard 3 places each way terms. As
soon as this changes we'll confirm details here.
